Burnsall to Grassington Walk
A delightful waterside walk along the River Wharfe from Burnsall to Grassington in the Yorkshire Dales. It's a very beautiful part of the river with stunning views of Wharfedale and a visit to Linton Falls to enjoy. The route is fairly easy going, running for just a few miles along a section of the waymarked Dales Way long distance trail.
You can park in the car park in Burnsall where there is also a Grade II listed grammar school building dating from 1602.
The walk starts on Burnsall Bridge and follows the waymarked trail along the western side of the river to nearby Hebden. Here you cross to the other side on the suspension bridge and continue west passing Linton Church which can be reached via stepping stones when the river is low enough.
Shortly after you come to the beautiful Linton Falls where there is a bridge with fine views down to the falls.
The final section takes you into the town of Grassington where there are lots of nice pubs and tea rooms for refreshments after your walk.
There's lots of other great walks to try in the area if you would like to continue your exercise. You could visit the wonderful limestone gorge at Troller's Gill, try the waterside trail at Grimwith Reservoir or visit the village of Hebden on our Grassington Circular Walk. There's also the option of picking up the Dales Way on the Grassington to Kettlewell Walk.
